Minister says SLMC is to recognise SAITM medical degree

Higher Education Minister Lakshman Kiriella says the Sri Lanka Medical Council (SLMC) has decided to recognise the medical degree which had been awarded by the South Asian Institute of Technology and Medicine (SAITM) in Malabe.

He says the students who had obtained medical degrees from SAITM will need to undergo more than five weeks of clinical training.

Kiriella said that the protests staged against the SAITM medical degree have been of no use as the degree is now going to be recognised. (Colombo Gazette)
